Keeping Up With MyselfMost days I am like the Sun, bright, energetic, warm, smiling and bigger than life. Then there are those days when I describe myself as falling raindrops, my emotions landing here, there and everywhere. Oh! I long to be the Sun everyday.

Most of my raindrops I bring on myself because I want to do everything. I want to be an attentive wife, a loving parent and grandparent, a needed daughter, my dog Orchid’s companion, a loyal and GOOD friend. I want to write my daily blog, I want to work out, make sure the fridge is well-stocked, make social engagements, pay our bills on time, text my grandchildren, listen to family issues, return emails, and on and on. The problem, there are just so many hours in a day!

Fortunately I have one “ray” of hope. The Sun. Because for some fortunate reason which I cannot explain, I am blessed with “those rays of Sun” that radiate into my soul, and I feel peace that I have the opportunity to have a loving husband and family to cater to, money to pay our bills, my loving dog that cannot stop kissing me, the desire to stay fit, my “needed purpose” with, and my social network of friends in my life that “pique my fancy.”

So keep those raindrops coming, because without them I would not be “THE SUN.”

The moral of the story: You may not have time to smell the flowers because of the fullness of your life…but just think…how lucky is that!  

Do Something GOOD Today: Don’t be too hard on yourself! Prioritize your “to do” list, and do what you can while still enjoying life.
